I got this game today and I downloaded the patch for retail to version 3, and so far it's taken hours to install the update. Is this normal?

Also, I have never played this game before, is it worth it or should I stop before I even play?

I don't know.

I've never played the new one, but the old games were great. I really liked that they added real parks in Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.

This. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is a fun game, no doubt, but much of the charm of the first two was lost in the switch to 3D.

In RCT3, they took away the power to kill the peeps. When a roller coaster car crashes into them at well over 700mph (a cheat), they go flying and proclaim that it 'smarts'. Shame, on 1 & 2, if there was a coast crash the people on the ride would disintegrate into nothing.

Creating newer ways to kill my peeps was one of the best parts of RCT

also, see drowning and dropping into pits

rct1 and rct2 were very very good games

rct3 kind of blows. the fact that you can ride the coasters is nice though

Drowning was fun. Best thing to do was to get a Steel Roller Coaster, set it to Launch (so you didn't have to have a full circuit), test it at a slow speed, so that it doesn't go over, get people on it and turn the speed up. It's best when launched off a cliff into water.

When you've got all the Custom Scenery and expansions, it's as good as the others. One of my favourite games. I never even did the scenarios, I'd just build as nice a park as possible in the Scenario Editor.

The original is much better. Get that.

Okay guys, seriously, I aborted the installation of the first patch, uninstalled the game, deleted the root folder, ran CCleaner, and did a complete reboot. It was taking so god damn long, I did this to make absolutely sure there were no processes running for no reason and slowing everything down.

Upon restarting, I re-installed the game, and ran the update. I started at 4:30pm, so it's been going for over 3 hours now! WHAT THE HELL?

EDIT:

Disregard this post, and this entire thread. I saw there is a gaming thread.

Original rollercoaster tycoons were the shiznit. Strangely I live in the same town as the developer, of the first two, I believe he sold it on for the third or something similar.
